Fun with the Boys Which Really Matters
My grandsons were at our house for their weekly sleepover this past Friday night, so Saturday morning, after our usual breakfast of monkey bread, bacon and scrambled cheesy eggs, we spent time doing Science, the Bible & Fun. The boys did a fun experiment with cooking oil, water, food coloring and Alka Seltzer tablets . . . they LOVED the “explosions” – we will do this project again for sure . . . we learned about the eight-year old boy named Josiah who became king so long ago, how he made the choice to obey, what we can learn about obeying from King Josiah and we worked on the boy’s prayer journals.
It was a fun morning – filled with many things which make this grandma’s heart “sing”, but the thing which still has me so happy is when my sweet Caleb (five years old) climbed into my lap, looked at me, smiled his biggest smile and said; “Grandma, I love you and I love Jesus, too!”
I love to spend time with my grandsons, but beyond having them over each week
because I like to be with them, I do this because I want them to be boys who choose to love, know and walk with Jesus - now and throughout their lives. If having them over and spending time with things like Science, the Bible & Fun give me the opportunity to help them learn more about God, then it is well worth the time - there is nothing I could do with my time which matters more.
